'For the most important English composer of his generation, this series of Masses is long overdue, and we are fortunate that it is being completed with such a high level of success' (Fanfare, USA)

'Marvellous music … well worth reissuing' (Early Music Review)

'These reissues epitomise the qualities that make The Sixteen one of Britain's outstanding choral groups: distilled purity of sound: impeccable ensemble and intonation; long-breathed lines. Harry Christophers takes an introspective view of Taverner's monumental Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas, producing a performance of untrammelled serenity.' (BBC Music Magazine)
